side right now. that is not what they need. what the romney side needs is that they still have to persuade people that governor romney is the guy they should vote for. at the national level, that means they need to fix whatever has gone so wrong with their campaign message and they need to stop doing whatever it is that has turned so many people off to their candidate. when you ask voters whether they like this mitt romney guy, the answer is a very, very plain answer. no. his favorable ratings are in the low 40s. almost 10 points lower than the ratings for president obama. lower, even, than the famously unpopular former president george w. bush right now. swing state voters say they do not think that mitt romney cares about the needs and problems of people like them. some of mr. romney's numbers are just shockingly bad. i mean double check. shockingly bad. look at the percentage of swing state voters who say mitt romney's policies will favor the middle class. in florida it's 8%. in ohio it's 9%. in pennsylvania it's 9%. whatever the romney campaign has done to get themselves to
surrogates, florida senator marco rubio says that's the right approach. does mitt romney need to score a knockout punch? >> this is not an athletic competition. this is a debate between two money, one that is president and wants to stay there and one that wants to offer a new direction. >> reporter: all day long the romney campaign has signalled it will go after what it sees as another gaffe from vice president joe biden at a rally in charlotte. >> this is deadly earnest. how they can justify, how they can justify raising taxes on the middle class that's been buried the last four years. >> in the richest country in the history of the world this obama economy has crushed the middle class. >> reporter: romney's ad team quickly seized on the remarks churning out a web video. at an event in denver rubio piled on. >> those happen to be the words of the distinguished vice president of the united states mr. joe biden. no, don't boo. he's the best thing we got going, guys. don't boo. because in a moment of clarity, in a brief moment of clarity he just told us what we already knew. >> reporter
. it could be mitt romney comes across as likeable. there's a lot of things that could go right for governor romney. there will be two more debates, not election eve. having said this the fact that i don't think the debates will change a lot, the race is close. if there's a small change, even a couple points because of the debates that could be decisive. >> heather: there is the matter of real world matters as well in terms what is going on in the real world, surrounding these debates and the times they happen, right? >> exactly right. four years ago the reason nothing changed from this point on to the rest of the election, the debates didn't matter because we already had the wall street meltdown and candidates had reacted, real world events solidified 's solid lead. we haven't had an event like that but there's things percolating in the mideast that could shake-up the race, a couple more employment reports. if employment numbers and other economic indicators muddle along, then they won't change things that much. if there is a big shift in perceptions of the economy, that will have a bigger
rights, but on economic rights. if you think about, for example, candidate romney's attacks on president obama and how he contributed to women's job losses, many of those losses came about under bush and then continued and reduced under president obama. the term that has been demonized by governors like gov. scott walker of wisconsin, gov. kasich of ohio -- the teachers, nurses, women working in the public sector have lost their jobs due to the failure of commitment for the federal government to give money to the states in this time of crisis, which president obama supported. but you know, i think you'd see independent women, as i said before, a growing block of women, not just progressives or democrats, democratic women, who do worry about the fact that their daughter, for example, might not have access to planned parenthood, which, by the way, is really about women's health, mammograms, and not just these hot-button issues of reproductive choice. so i do think the independent women voters are the canary in the coal mined in terms of the seeing a republican party that is not hospitable

do they blame the rich people? too.have moneyo, right now i'm supporting mitt romney. host: let's get a response. guest: i am sorry that you lost your job. what is says is our economy is not on track. president obama knows that and his message is, "give me four more years." the message from mitt romney is, "get out of here. you have had enough time." that will be a crucial issue. people are looking for those messages. guest: it tends to get lost. not blaming that on the financial mess. of course it will affect him and his political outlook and his vote if he has felt the sting of this recession and getting laid off. a lot of people have been out of work for a long time. some of the jobs may not be coming back. anybody from the romney camp may be looking for this caller. guest: lois romano was talking about the people that en.t jobs mostly were white ma republicans have traditionally gone towards republicans anyway. he has the ability to capture your vote. host: lauren ashburn is the editor in chief of "daily download." howard kurtz is an adviser to the "daily download." guest: brand c
president obama and republican challenger mitt romney. you know mitt romney is looking for a new look and, of course, the president is trying to avoid the incumbent trap of trying to appear arrogant or underprepared. a lot on the line right now. >> a big moment in the campaig because there are so many eyes on this. it's the first of three debates between these two men. it's scheduled to last 90 minutes, and with just 33 days until the election some 60 million people are expected to tune in. former republican candidate rick santorum knows what it's like to go against mitt romney in a debate. we'll talk to him straight ahead, as well as the president's deputy campaign manager stephanie cutter. >>> also ahead, we brought you his incredible story last week, a man looking for a second chance to fulfill his dream after he suffered a debilitating injury in his one and only at-bat in the major leagues. last night, seven years later, adam greenberg finally got that chance. we'll show you how he did and talk to him about the big moment the morning after. >>> a bit later, you think politics can get
today is that mitt romney will actually do his debate walk through tomorrow over at the university of denver, so he'll be working on this all, you know, basically right up until the last moment. he had his top surrogates on the campaign trail and romney has an event later on today in littleton, colorado. paul ryan has been pretty busy, almost nonstop, out on the campaign trail the last couple of days. and so, you know, i think he'll let his surrogates do the talking for him until the debate gets started. one other thing we heard from kevin madden yesterday on the campaign plane heading into denver yesterday, brooke, you heard over the weekend, chris christie saying that this race is going to be turned upside down that romney will have such a strong performance that it is going to be sort of a game changer. i asked kevin madden about that yesterday, and he said he doesn't think that the campaign doesn't think that one event, one moment during these debates is going to decide and determine everything. they just don't see it that way. they like christie's enthusiasm, they say they're

for ronald reagan. is there a way -- are you doing anything to get into the race cycle with obama and romney? host: what do you say? we had a similar question from twitter. guest: right now i'm excluded from the first debate. the commission is the presidential debate commission and that is private and made up of republicans and democrats with no interest in seeing a third voice on stage. we have filed three lawsuits to get me on stage based on other third-party candidates who have there doesn't seem to be much hope. we filed on the antitrust round, -- browns. -- grounds. something that has not been done before. host: how much do these debates matter and what are you looking for to hearing on wednesday? guest: the debates are tantamount to me having a chance of winning. you can close the lid on winning the election. is winning getting enough votes to cause one of the other two who ends up winning to give more than just lip service to these issues? potentially. you know, steve, i view this as a victory every single day. there are so many people -- i think i speak on behalf of the majority of a

rights than in a moslem country. i will vote for mitt romney. i'm a very libertarian voters. we have been monopolized. look at the restaurant on the highway, all owned by coca-cola or pepsi-cola. the small businessman has no chance. look at danny thomas, a jewish merchant, 11 guys -- a lebanese merchants. if you are working on your own, you pay higher for a business license. guest: are not sure which to address. on the criticism of the two parties, i read a quote recently or someone said there is only one party and that is the wall street party. maybe that is the problem. i have not seen anybody prosecuted on wall street since the crash of 2008. i personally attribute that to the fact that neither party wants to offend wall street. there is so much money involved. it has happened before. it happened at the end of the 19th century. 1% of the population had half the well. 10% of the population at 90% of the wealth. maybe we are at the same point and at that point, it gave birth to the progressive movement. they were liberals in the early 20th century and maybe we're on the verge of somethin
